Happy Anniversary to me!! [Vanity]
FreeRepublic | 29 November 2011 | ShadowAce

Posted on 11/29/2011 5:22:16 PM PST by ShadowAce

Today marks the 11th Anniversary of my first sign on to FR.

I had lurked for about a month around the election of 2000 before finally registering for an account--and I haven't left since.

This is my first stop in the morning, and last at night. It's where I can get up-to-the-minute news, and commentary from people who I trust, even though we don't always agree.

Thank you to all who make this possible!

I’ll have to post so I can click on my own name and see when I became an addict as well.

In the beginning it was Jim and I and a Timex Sinclair for a server.

Hehe ... I have a Timex Sinclair on display on a shelf in my office, WITH the 32 K expansion module plugged in!

My first real experiments with BASIC programming were done on that machine with the cassette tape recorder as my ‘disk drive’.

Wow. Hadn’t thought about that in YEARS!

Gotcha beat by twelve days, noobie:

Charles Henrickson
Since Nov 17, 2000

I had written a parody called "The Palm Beach Pokey" about a week before, and somebody told me it was getting a lot of attention on this thing called "Free Republic." So I signed up.

867 threads and 39,295 replies later, I'm still here.

P.S.: 39,296 now.

“a Timex Sinclair for a server.”

Believe it or not I used one of those with an old black and white TV and cassette tape to write a program that shaved about $5,000/year worth of time off of a routine lab calculation we used to run manually at a foundry sand mill back in the early 80’s.

n00bs all of you... It will officially be 14 years Thursday (thanks to the early registration bug on FR), but some of us have been here quite a bit longer.

God bless Jimrob for providing this place on the Internet.

I didn’t have any io devices so I used it to learn Basic. Of course when I turned it off all data was gone. All 1K of it. It taught me alot for $29. I could draw a circle! If then else goto.

I had my 6th on the 21st. It should be easy to remember because it’s also our wedding anniversary. I remembered the wedding anniversary, but not this one. At least I’m safe at home...

I stumbled onto FR via Drudge, back when Drudge was linking FR.

It's a shame Drudge stopped doing that . . .

"...Thanks, gonzo! I just wish I had gotten here sooner, like you did!..."

As long as you made it, pal!

Hell, I'da registered 3 months earlier, but I had to learn how to turn the damned computer on first.

Then all the FReepers taught me how to use it, like this:
